The historic, stunning and unique Strathpeffer Pavilion, in its tranquil garden setting, is the perfect Highland wedding venue and can be all yours for your most special day. Please ring Andrew or Mary Dawn on 01997 420124, or use this link to email them, to request a copy of our wedding brochure - or you can download a copy here. Better still, make an appointment to come and see this wonderful venue for yourself. We would be happy to show you around - and we know you'll love it!
If your dream is to be married in a Scottish castle, we now have an arrangement with the Earl of Cromartie, owner of Castle Leod, whereby your wedding ceremony can be held at the Castle, with a reception at the Pavilion. Castle Leod is an especially romantic place for a wedding because it was the inspiration for Jamie's home in Diana Gabaldon's popular "Outlander" series.
At the Pavilion, we can offer any or all of:
- Your wedding ceremony (whether a religious, civil or humanist ceremony)
- Your wedding reception and meal
- Your evening dance
The Pavilion's spectacular main hall is one of the largest spaces of its kind in the Highlands and is very adaptable. Our dedicated staff team can therefore work closely with each wedding couple to tailor your own day to your exact requirements - every wedding is different but each one is a truly special, memorable and wonderful day for the wedding couple and their guests.
The main hall will be magnificently set with white linen, shining cutlery and sparkling glasses - and with your own flowers, favours, seat covers and other personal touches to complement your wedding theme.
Next to the hall is an elegant glassed-in veranda, overlooking the Pavilion Gardens, where you can welcome your guests in style with a drinks reception - and they can stroll out onto the patio or into the gardens if they wish. The Pavilion Gardens also provide a beautiful setting for your wedding photographs - click here and here to see some examples.
Meantime, your choice of menu will be prepared by the
Pavilion's in-house caterers, who work closely with each wedding couple, as well as with the Pavilion team. They have been nominated for a VOWS Award in 2012. Once you and up to 200 guests (or 250 buffet-style) have enjoyed your delicious wedding meal, there will still be plenty of space if you would like more friends to join you for your evening dance. There is a stage for your band and/or disco and the Pavilion has a fully licensed bar - or a bar can be set up in the main hall or veranda.
